Charter schools release teacher salaries, withhold admin pay

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

The non-profit that oversees three area charter schools released its teacher salaries Friday, but won't say how much the school administrators earn.

Charter Day School (CDS) provided teacher pay information for Charter Day School in Leland, Columbus Charter School in Whiteville, and Douglass Academy in Wilmington. 

WECT filed a formal complaint with the State Office of Charter Schools June 4 after CDS failed to provide the information requested April 30.  

The government-funded schools are required to comply with the state's public records laws as a condition of their charters. 

On Friday, CDS provided the salaries of its teachers and some other employees including teacher assistants, office personnel and bus drivers.  

Most of its teachers make $30,800 – the amount the state pays teachers with up to five years of experience in a traditional public school. The most highly paid CDS teacher receives $43,840. 

CDS officials won't say how much its school administrators earn, explaining the headmasters don't work for the non-profit. Instead, they are employees of Roger Bacon Academy Inc, the company that manages the schools. 

Roger Bacon Academy is a "private entity not subject to statutes," wrote Sawyer Batten, a company spokeswoman.
